Aggregate and volume names in netapp c mode

Are the name of aggregates unique in a cluster? Can one aggregate on one node can have same name another aggregate in another node within same cluster.

As per my understanding, an aggregate can be created from multiple nodes. Also one aggregate can be relocated from one node to another. In both the situations, how does it work if two aggregates belonging to different nodes can have same name.

Similarly for volumes, can two volumes belonging to different SVMs have same name?

Please advise.


Re: Aggregate and volume names in netapp c mode

Aggregates belongs to cluster, so you can't create a 2 aggregates with the same name. Because volumes belongs to SVMs, you can create 2 volumes with the same name under different SVM but it isn't possible under the same SVM.
